Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Boot problem Compaq Presario F756nr gets stuck sometimes in a rebbot cycle when starting up. It will begin to boot for a few seconds and then shut off. It then starts to boot again and same thing. I have to hold the power button down to get it to shut down. If I let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then it will start. Any ideas?

Answers :

This can be an indication of a hardware or device conflict, but can also be caused by software or malware installed on your system....If you have not already created a set of recovery disks for your system, it would be a good idea to do so before you are unable to boot up.

Then work through this list of troubleshooting options for vista startup problems, and see if you can't determine which device or driver is causing the difficulty. Using the system configuration utility, you can disable non-microsoft services from running at startup and selectively enable them until you find the offending service that causes the boot to fail. (This was known as msconfig in xp, and you'll find more info on a search of that).
Vista also has a startup repair utility that can be run from the installation disks.
If you suspect a recently introduced application, you might try to restore the system to an earlier working state using system restore.
If you suspect malware, download Malwarebytes Anti-malware from www.malwarebytes.com and update and run a scan of your system. Fix any problems it finds.
This restart at boot problem in vista has been widely reported, and if your do a search on these terms you will find many links to search, but without a bit more info on your exact error ids it's hard to diagnose.
